Once you have enjoyed the beautiful vistas of the Nuble Lighthouse area, stop into Fox's for their fabulous Maine Blueberry pie and ice cream. What a treat - yummy and delish. Oh yes, almost forgot, we did also get their amply filled lobster rolls and they were terrific also. If you do nothing else tho - see the lighthouse and... More

It's a bit on the expensive side for what you get. The seafood is fresh. The views are beautiful and the kids love to sit where they can see Nubble and watch divers in the water. I'm usually a bit bummed I spent that much on dinner after I see the check.

We have been to the restaurant numerous times over the years food is good. New menu jacked up prices added 20 percent tip for party of eight, felt price shock when bill came. Will not be back anytime soon

How this place got such good reviews is beyond me? The food was horrible, portions where shockingly small, and the staff seemed annoyed to be waiting on us. If it wasn't for the beautiful lighthouse nearby this place would of been out business a long time ago.

The lobster is fantastic, view is beautiful and the employees are super. There's not a bad table in the house. The prices, however, are high, even for lunch. I've been at other restaurants in ME where I've gotten an excellent lobster meal for a better price. I believe you're definitely paying for the view, which can't be beat. I had... More

We have a vacation home near Fox's and can walk to the Lobster House so some times we take it for granted. On the last night of our recent York vacation we went to Foxes. We all tried the lobster sauté and crumb pies. They were all spectacular and we really enjoyed them. The restaurant can be pricey but the... More

Scallop lunch basket scallops and fries were very good but could have used a few more scallop for 22 bucks. Hamburger was bland. 3.50 for a medium diet soda 8 oz maybe nice view but ur paying for it.

We had spent the day at Short Sands Beach in York and on the spur of the moment decided to take a ride to the Nubble Light House which we had seen many times. On the way I remembered that Fox's would be open and we had many times said we would have lunch there so on this trip we... More
